Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) refers to operating a business in a manner that accounts for the social and environmental impact created by the business. CSR means a commitment to developing policies that integrate responsible practices into daily business operations, and to reporting on progress made toward implementing these practices.
We help business leaders mitigate legal and reputational risks by incorporating internationally-recognized standards into their strategic planning, crisis response strategies, and stakeholder relationships.
